    Come summer we have BBQs almost every weekend!
    We always slice up a whole lot of potatoes and just put a seasoning on and fry on the BBQ. Sort of like potato crisps. Yummy, cheap and easy
    Also usually serve a cauliflower cheese.
    We get people to bring their own expensive meats and jut provide sausage and maybe sometimes a couple of bits of steak.
    Corn on the cob covered with butter then wrapped in alfoil and cook them on the BBQ.
    I usually make a really easy salad with lettuce, tomato, carrot, cucumber and cheese.

    sticks? buy some pork or chicken, put them on skewers. cut the meat thin and marinate. makes a small amount go a long way.
    chipolatas wrapped in bacon
    marinated chicken wings (cut each joint so they are easier on the bbq or throw them in the oven)
    rissoles with cheese in the middle
    fajitas (marinated meat strips, onion, capsicum, mushrooms) and tortillas

    rice salad, potato salad, green salad, coleslaw

    if you make all these yourself, it will cut down the cost by a lot and taste a lot better than anything bought.

    Butterflied legs of lamb go a long way. Just marinate it in olive oil, lemon juice and rosemary/parsley/mint and whack it on the grill for 15 mins each side.

    I love BBQ food!
    Huge potato bake in the oven.
    Home made meat patties with spices (eg cumin)- can be eaten on their own or made into a hamburger
    sausages- always a fave with the kids to make sausage sizzles, and spice it up for adults with a chili chutney/ sauce
    small chicken strips- marinaded in garlic, lemon juice and zest, salt, pepper and any fresh herb you have (eg parsley, coriander).
    Pork spare ribs in honey, garlic, soy- so inexpensive and so wonderful.

    I agree, make it all yourself and it is alot cheaper and nicer than buying pre-made bbq stuff. Enjoy your day

    A big pasta salad - just pasta, olive oil, sundried tomatoes and fresh herbs. Filling and yummy, plus it's cheap and easy. You can toss through some baby spinach and chicken too.

    Skewers with marinated meat, capsicum and onion (I like pineapple on these too, but some people think its weird!)

    We do the sliced potato on the BBQ too, so yummy! Kids love that stuff.

    A big fruit and cheese platter to pick at.

    Cous Cous salad

    Chicken rissoles with sweet chilli sauce (mix a little green curry paste in the chicken mince and whatever else you want to chuck in)

    Can't think of anything else right now...
